Question A Question for James Still

Hello James

You recently chastised me for calling on idea put forward by one of the regulars here stupid and idiotic. At the same time, I have personally been called virtually every name in the book, as has Layman, SecWebLurker and other Christians on this site.

What is the protocol for acceptable posts on these boards?

Thank you,

Nomad

Your comment is the epitome of unintended irony.

I have been assured that whatever the standards are, there is no double standard. The fact that you are chastised for referring to an argument as stupid, while others have called other posters "morons," "ignoramuses," "dumbos," and generally threatened theists with physical violence, is nothing but an unfortunate coincidence.

Thank you for the clarification Layman.

Peace,

Nomad

P.S. I would still like to hear from James on this question however.

Nomad:

"...so where does that leave atheism? An intellectual dead end wouldn't you say?"

Know the one about pot and kettle?

The quickest way to get someone to stop someone calling your ideas garbage is to post effectively, thus showing that the offender is an idiot. Yes, come to think of it now, I can understand why you went running to James Still, rather than simply posting effectively and silencing the opposition.

Hmm.. and this thread could well turn into an interesting study in the "better" atheist minds on these boards.

Don't sweat it gentlemen, I asked James a question. I am sure he will answer it when he gets the chance.

In the meantime, if you have anything interesting to say on any of the threads on which I participate, give it a try. It won't hurt, I promise.

By all means, make it one. Or is it "cut-n-run" time yet again?

He's on vacation.

Have you been asleep? I've posted to all your threads today.....and it didn't hurt. Believe me, the last thing I fear pain from is a response from you...unless it's caused by splitting my sides laughing.

I did not know that he was on holidays. No worries though.

Thanks for the info Michael.

No wonder James quit responding to my post dealing with his faulty Greek.
